Five for Friday - 4/12

Yahoo, it's 5 for Friday time - I'm linking up - ON Friday! Wow!! 

If you want to "play" - link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching.


1. It's Friday! Yeah. Friday's are my recess day, and even as I put on my (brown colored so they don't look too much like sneakers) New Balances, I knew my feet were going to hurt today. Does anybody else have this problem? What do you do? I'm thinking of investing in some thick socks. I looked on (where I buy a lot of my shoes) and there are some socks for $80!!!! I really want to met the person who buys $80 socks. 

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I'm very happy it's Friday and I can rest my tootsies. Well, really the bottoms of my feet are what hurt, but anyway. 

2. Mega support from a parent. Sometimes I've been afraid to contact a parent because I'm afraid it won't do any good. I have a kiddo that's having some difficulties, and Dad has emailed me two days in a row, wanting to know specifics. Thank You!  

3. I did running records this past week. My school is really focusing on fluency and wpm this year. I have 13 kids reading at 92 wpm, where they are supposed to be by the end of the year, with another 3 or 4 that are just a bit short of that. So that's a yahoo and yeah!

4. I finally got to do my Salt Paintings. {This is a year after I found the idea, but OK.} And pooh, forgot a picture. Maybe Monday - I need to put a note on my phone reminder. Anyway, they turned out pretty cool looking, and it always surprises me how much the kids enjoy art projects. This is the example picture. Wait til you see some of mine :)

5.  My daughter and I were home alone last night, so we splurged and had Applebee's - steaks for each of us, and watched "Hart of Dixie on Netflix. It's such a fun show. And I love watching without having to go through commercials.

Ah, my dear reader friend - Happy Friday to you! I hope you have a terrific weekend!


  1. Hi Sara,

    I found your blog thru the Five for Friday link up. My daughter's name is Sara, so I had to visit your blog. {Love the name.} Thank you for sharing the Salt Paintings site. I teach art during our first grade rotation, and I'm always on the lookout for new ideas. I hope you share the ones your class makes.

  2. Hey, Friday is my recess day also! Loving my Saturday, I hope you are too.

    1. My Saturday was a good one - got my lesson plans done til the end of the year, and went out to supper with my hubby. Hopefully today (Sunday) is relaxing!
